i pledge to buy handmade

just added a button to my blog for http://www.buyhandmade.org/ check it out! i plan to make all my gifts this year...what about you? support an artist in 2007!!

for all the ladies in my family this year they will be getting an altered recipe book, photo journal, or journal. i use old children's books and glue papers to the pages then gesso over the papers and then add waterdowned acrylic paint to the pages. they are then embellished with papers, quotes, recipes, photos, stamps, fibers, etc...i will post some pictures soon.

for the guys, i am not sure just yet what they will be getting....guys gifts for me are hard to come up with. maybe homemade cookies and candies...any suggestions?
